For the call log question, you can do this:
- Click on the phone icon, then click and go into Options
- Click on the option for Call Logging
- Set the Call Logging to 'None'
Now the call logs will be 'hidden' in the Messages icon, but you can quickly display them by using the search shortcut of ALT-OP.
For the latest OS software, go to the US Cellular website and seach for it....should find it there somewhere. You'll need to download it and use Desktop Manager (the CD that should have come with your device) to install it.
